I have a script running that will start up an interface with a new IP.
If the script comes up with an IP that is already in use i am in trouble.
Is it possible that the script set up the new Ip, detects that this IP is already in use and then check the next one, until it finds an ip that works ?
B=192.168.1. I=1 while [ "$I" != "256" ] do ifconfig eth0:1 $B.$I # check here that IP is Ok ! let "I=I+1" done
I cannot use DHCP.
